Give me this dress, a flight to Greece and a glass of rose – and I’m all set!

If you’ve been to any summer wedding or read any fashion blog this season, chances are you’ve glimpsed this oh so lovely Self Portrait dress.  Lacy, feminine and unique, I think it’s the perfect pretty party dress for any summer occasion. Something not so pretty? The $480 price tag.

Miranda Kerr is a fan. Miranda also has supermodel/Orlando Bloom divorce money, so $480 probably doesn’t set her back like us peasants.

Surprisingly, there aren’t too many dupes currently available for this design. Determined to save money and find a bargain, I put my years of online shopping/sleuthing experience to the test. Finally, the angels at Bloomingdale’s heard my prayers and sent me a Sunday blessing with a gorgeous look for less:

Brought to you by in-house Bloomingdale’s brand, Aqua, you can look very Self Portrait esque without the price tag. Sidenote – this brand Aqua has so many cute dresses right now – definitely check them out. Thanks to the neckline details, I almost love the look for less more than the original. If you’re headed to a bridal shower or wedding and don’t want to commit a serious faux pas, the dress also comes in pink and black.

Happy Sunday and happy shopping!
